How are borders formed, consolidated, dissolved, and re-formed? How are they negotiated, patrolled, breached, and crossed? In an age of accelerating exchange and contact, how do forces of globalization and anti-globalization impact our relations to borders “real” and “imaginary”? How do these processes transform borderlands and their inhabitants, both human and non-human? How do these forces affect our perception of ourselves in relation to each other and to the world? How do literature, film, theater, and other art forms capture these processes? Conversely, how may literary, visual, and other types of representations re-shape borders and borderlands?
